Question

Explain why each of the following statements is either true or false: a) The computer program gave me a p-value of .000, so I know that my theory has been verified. b) The computer program gave me a p-value of .02, so I know that I have found a very strong relationship. c) The computer program gave me a p-value of .06, so I know that this relationship is due to random chance. d) The computer program gave me a p-value of .50, so I know there is only a 50% chance of this relationship being systematic.

Answer #1

a) The computer program gave me a p-value of .000, so I know that my theory has been verified - False

b) The computer program gave me a p-value of .02, so I know that I have found a very strong relationship. - True

since p-value < alpha 0.05, there is association between the variables

c) The computer program gave me a p-value of .06, so I know that this relationship is due to random chance - True

since p-value > alpha 0.05, there is no association between the variables i.e. random chance

d) The computer program gave me a p-value of .50, so I know there is only a 50% chance of this relationship being systematic. - False

EXPLAIN why each of the following statements is
either true or false:
(a) The computer program gave me a p-value of 0.000, so I know
that my theory has been verified.
(b) The computer program gave me a p-value of 0.02, so I know
that I have found a very strong relationship.
(c) The computer program gave me a p-value of 0.07, so I know
that this relationship is due to random chance.

Identify each of the following statements as either true of
false.
a) FalseTrueClick for
List If the null hypothesis is false, then
large differences between the observed and expected values may
exist.
b) FalseTrueClick for
List In a one-way table, each observed value
can fall into only one of the given classifications.
c) FalseTrueClick for
List To determine the expected frequency for
each cell, we multiply the total number of observations by the
probability of an observation being in that particular cell.
d) ...

Indicate whether the following statements are true or false.
(a) A p value is the probability that the null hypothesis is
true.
(b) A p value is a measure of discrepancy of the fit of the null
hypothesis to the data
(c) A p value is the probability of rejecting the null
hypothesis when it is true.
(d) A p value is the probability of observing data at least as
favourable to the alternative hypothesis as our current data set,...

Determine whether the following statements are true or false and
in either case briefly explain why.
Answers must be three sentences or less. Answers longer than
three sentences will receive an automatic zero.
(b) Assume that a risk-free asset as well as two risky
securities exist in the economy. If the risky securities are
perfectly positively correlated with each other, diversifying among
the two will not make a greedy risk-averse investor better off.
Hint: it may be worth drawing a...

For each of the following statements, identify whether the
statement is true or false, and explain why. Please limit each
response to no more than 3 sentences.
i) A p-value is the probability that the null hypothesis is
false. ii) A chi-square test statistic can never be negative.
iii) If we reject the null hypothesis that a population
proportion is equal to a specific value, then that specific value
will not be contained in the associated confidence interval.
iv) If...

Determine whether each of the following statements is true or
false and explain why you think so.
a) In perfectly competitive market, the long-run supply curve is
downward sloping in decreasing cost industry.
b) The marginal revenue for a perfectly competitive firm is

greater than the market price for positive quantities of
output.
c) To calculate the Lerner Index for a particular firm, you need
to know price...

Indicate whether each of the following statements is true or
false and explain why.
A competitive firm that is incurring a loss should immediately
cease operations.
A pure monopoly does not have to worry about suffering losses
because it has the power to set its prices at any level it
